Help with propane tanks

Hi All,

I installed a propride 3p hitch, which works great. However, as you can see from the attached picture my propane tanks are right up against my hitch jack.

Do any of you have any suggestions as to how i can move them back... are here spacers that I can put down between the hitch pieces? What type of material should I use. As always thanks for the help.

How is the tank holding base mounted to the trailer frame - welded or bolted?

In the past I have heard of someone putting the tongue jack 180 degrees but that requires the plate to be moved by a reweld or the jack taken apart to twist the plate -

Not sure of that helps or not though

Swap the LP tanks with the battery location. Will probably require shorter/smaller tanks, due to the overhang I see. But I don't see any other solution.
